hot off of the printing press, thought i would share

07 6.0 powerstroke
104,796 mi.
7,424 mi. on sample (approx 4 months)
john deere plus 50 10w-30 CI-4
oilscan (through deere)
dealer didn't have tbn test kit yet, so i used what i had on hand

iron.................11
chromium.............<1
nickel...............<1
aluminum..............1
lead..................3
copper................1
tin..................<1
silver...............<1
titanium.............<1
silicon...............6
boron...............170
potassium...........<10
moly................119
phos...............1366
zinc...............1569
calcium............3992
barium..............<10
magnesium............16
antimony............<30
vanadium.............<1
fuel% vol............<1
t/s% vol............<.1
water% vol..........<.1
vis cs 100c........10.6

its a fairly uneventful report, i changed oil & filter at time of sample and used the same type oil.
driving conditions are 90% highway with a little towing and hauling upto 4000# in the bed.
from what i have seen from my last two runs of 10w-30, powerstroke owners can run this year around without hesitation, weather conditions here over the last two months have been 90f+ more often than not.

no it is not a syn., i was able to lighten the load of my local dealers stock of the older spec CI-4 for around 11 bucks a gallon.

there was no make-up oil added during this oci

just to update, i just recieved uoa, its virtually a repeat of the previous one.
'07 f350 powerstroke 7,604 mi. on sample 9/20/10

there is very little towing on this sample, but hauling upto 4000# regularly down the interstate in 90f+
after 3 sucessive runs of the same oil/grade the powerstroke seems to get along with 10w-30 quite nicely

my dealer doesn't have the tbn test kits in stock, so for the 11 bucks i'll just stick with the standard test.
as well as everything looks in the sample i doubt that the tbn is too low, manual says change at 7,500 mi., i'm not interested in extended intervals, i just like to keep an eye on everything.

last year ago i caught an injector o-ring leak on this truck with an uoa, so along with the other equipment i send a sample in at every oc.

oilscan test kits at my dealer are 11.84, then i take them to the post office, i think a buck or a buck and a half to ship.
this paticular sample was drawn on monday eve, mailed tuesday morning, and i recieved e-mail notifcation friday night of the results. they also mail a copy, but the e-mail is fast and all of the previous samples are available online through my account
